Summertime lawn care do’s and don’ts for Buckhannon residents

BUCKHANNON — City officials would like to remind residents to be thoughtful of visitors and their neighbors as we approach the summer season. A number of issues appear each year that cause complaints to be filed with the city.  Here are the Do’s and Don’ts for lawn care:

Keep grass clippings out of the street – Leaving grass clippings in the street contributes to blocked storm drains and an increased threat of local flooding. When you or your yard service finishes mowing, excess grass MUST be collected and disposed of properly. The city collects yard debris early on the first and third Friday morning of the month – you must call and schedule a pickup before noon on the prior Thursday.  Note: yard waste is collected by the Street Department and is not treated as garbage. Please do not dispose of yard waste as part of your weekly trash pickup.

Lawn care needs to be done weekly – The attractiveness of your neighborhood is enhanced by proper maintenance of your yard. Failure to mow your lawn, having excess materials in your yard or on an open porch filled with “stuff” often become eyesores for your neighbors. Please help make our city shine for our visitors and your neighbors. As a regular subscriber of city service for trash collection you may call and arrange for the pickup of bulky goods and other unwanted items by city crews for a reasonable fee.

Thank you for helping keep Buckhannon beautiful and safe.
